The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has released the identity of the man killed in what it described as a hit and run incident shortly before daybreak today (December 25) on Ewarton main road in St. Catherine.

He is 31-year-old Mickel Martin, better known as Ninja, from Russel Pen district in the Treadways are of Linstead – also in St. Catherine.

The JCF said: “Reports from the Ewarton Police are that, about 3AM, three persons were traveling on a motorcycle towards Linstead. Upon reaching the Browns Town vicinity [in Ewarton], a grey Subaru motor car collided with the motor cycle and drove away.
